If you thought the huge explosion and radiation leakage from the Fukushima nuclear plant was big, clearly you didn’t see the press release from Square Enix. Starting this week, servers for FINAL FANTASY XIV, FINAL FANTASY XI, and PlayOnline will be temporarily suspended. Additional features like friend lists, community site registration, and anything to do with PlayOnline, will forfeit in order to help conserve power. You know, to save energy for water and heat. Ok, that doesn’t matter but the good news is that you won’t have to pay for the month of April.
Yeah it’s a real bummer you won’t be able to log on any time soon, but hey it could be worse. I mean, what if Blizzard was located in Japan?
